    Kind of like Dan Uggla.

    He just had a chance with his eyes right, and he put up one of the worst offensive lines in MLB history.

    It's uncannily exactly what you'd expect given his recent performance before this year,...

    Maybe Bryant can play a better 3B than Baez can. I'm sure this FO knows what their doing and if that is how they position them, then it is more than likely the right call.[/QUOTE]

    Indeedy. Mine is probably

    1. Russell
    2. Bryant
    3. Baez
    4. Soler
    5. Mendy if he still counts

    Could easily have like 10 other combinations of that and no one would take major issue[/QUOTE]

    Bold: That's not true. UZR doesn't take shifted plays into account at all. They ignore those plays for now.

    I haven't looked that much into it, but my guess is with all the shifting done these days, any defensive system available to the public isn't all that great anymore.

    They are probably having extended Spring Training there right now and the Rookie Ball team that plays in the Arizona League will likely play on one of the fields, if not the main one at Cubs Park.
